Halton Housing’s Helping Hands initiative makes available funding, skills, materials and resources to community projects and groups which benefit the Borough.

Through our Helping Hands initiative we have been able to provide funding of £1000 to support the 2019 Christmas Hamper Project which has taken place of the last 7 years, to help over 150 vulnerable families struggling over the Christmas period throughout the Halton Borough.

Families are nominated by professionals working closely with the families in our communities in one way or another which include:

  • Children’s Social Care
  • Health Visiting
  • Housing
  • Citizen Advice Bureau
  • Venus
  • Early Help and many more…

This funding will play a big part in people’s lives and ensure that struggling families are provided with a hamper containing tinned foods, dried food, fruit, vegetables, hats, scarves, toiletries and more.

Halton Housing and Children’s Centres are working together in providing families throughout the borough a chance to enjoy Christmas without additional financial stress by providing food and gifts for children.

Halton Housing is proud to have been able to support this fabulous project through our Helping Hands fund.  Debbie Jameson, Customer Engagement Officer at Halton Housing said: “We are proud to be able to support this fabulous project.  There are many families in the Borough who struggle financially during the Christmas period. Providing these hampers will go some way to help decrease the pressure on those who need it most”.
